Lincolnshire Co-op’s €76.7m (£70m) redevelopment of The Cornhill Quarter has attracted some major retailers to its mixed-use scheme in the centre of Lincoln. The new signings total 13,115ft², with the overall regeneration zone anticipated to deliver in excess of 150,000ft² of mixed-use commercial floorspace over a series of development phases. The most recent of these lettings is Neon Sheep taking 1,711ft², along with a 1,600ft² handmade Doughnotts’ branch, a 2,500ft² Seasalt and a 7,304ft² énergie Fitness. This also follows some other great signings for the scheme recently, including 200 Degrees and HMV.
The opening of Neon Sheep and Doughnotts marks the expansion of these successful and unique businesses across the nation, with Doughnotts’ Lincoln store marking its fourth branch. The stationery and lifestyle brand Neon Sheep, started by Mountain Warehouse founder, has expanded in key locations throughout the UK.
James Stocker, Senior Project Manager at Mountain Warehouse said: “We’re so excited to have recently signed to be part of the redevelopment of The Cornhill Quarter. We can’t wait to share our vibrant and flourishing brand to the people of Lincolnshire. Watch out for the life-size pink sheep!"
Ursula Lidbetter, Lincolnshire Co-op’s Chief Executive, commented: “The Cornhill Quarter is continuing to attract exciting brands for the city; we have been able to announce a number of names over the past few months which all bring something different and create an attractive mix for Lincoln. We are confident in our vision to create a destination for residents and tourists alike which is also the gateway to Lincoln City Centre.”
